US Mint Sales: US Virgin Islands Quarters Appear, US Proof & Mint Sets Jump

by Mike Unser on October 7, 2009 · 0 comments

US Mint Sales Figures Image The first round of sales figures for US Virgin Islands Quarters are now available, as are the numbers for the newly launched US Mint Uncirculated Coin Set. The quarters are doing fine, the sets are off to the races.

Last week’s report showed that the Presidential $1 Coin Uncirculated Set had unexplained fiery sales. This week’s numbers are colder. Several of the US Mint’s proof sets, however, warmed up. These and other highlights follow:

  • The first round of numbers are in for bags and rolls of US Virgin Islands Quarters. Sales are strong. Compared to the prior inaugural American Samoa quarter figures, the 100-coin bags and two-roll sets are moving faster. Both the P & D 1000-coin bags, however, are trailing.

  • 2009 US Mint Sets have experienced exceptional collector demand during their first days on sale. Collectors purchased 297,842 between Thursday and Sunday. For more on this story, read 2009 US Mint Set Sales on Fire.

  • Presidential $1 Coin Uncirculated Sets are back to normal. Last week’s report showed an irregular super leap of 11,217. The latest increase is 1,181, which is inline with typical weekly demand.

  • UHR Double Eagle Gold Coins hit 97,447, picking up another 1,172. They will top 100K this month, and maybe by next week.

  • A number of proof sets outperformed their prior weekly sales. The 2009 Proof Set added 27,856 versus 25,794. The companion Silver Proof Set rose by 14,352 compared to 9,432. Finally, the Lincoln Cent Proof Set gained another 10,630 versus 6,702.

  • As for bullion coins, during the last seven days another 282,000 Silver Eagles and 26,000 Gold Eagles left the US Mint’s inventory. By next week, each could top year-to-date sales of 21 million and 1 million, respectively.
